Sedro-Woolley earned its nickname, the "gateway to the Cascades," for good reason. Located in northwest Washington, this city is just minutes from North Cascades National Park, a vast wilderness of tall pines, turquoise lakes, and jagged peaks. If the wanderlust hasn’t hit yet, our Sedro-Woolley vacation rentals are also a day-trip from the Washington coast with its rugged, moody beaches and sea stacks. It’s time you found your next adventure in this special corner of the Pacific Northwest.
While the incredible beauty of the Northern Cascades is certainly a huge draw to our Sedro-Woolley vacation rentals, you won’t be completely isolated from the rest of the world. The town is just 26 miles from the quirky college city of Bellingham, with its breweries and access to the San Juan Islands. Seattle is only 75 miles south, where you’ll find even more entertainment from museums to fine dining to the world-famous Pike Place Market.
If you’re heading to Sedro-Woolley, odds are that it has something to do with the incredible outdoor access. Whether you’re admiring it from a scenic drive or hitting the trails, North Cascades National Park is a must for any traveler in the area. There are dozens and dozens of hikes to choose from. A short, family-friendly stroll to Washington Pass Overlook means dramatic views of Liberty Bell Mountain. More experienced hikers can spend a day on Hidden Lake Trail, where the intense elevation gain—3,000 feet in eight miles—rewards you with views of an untouched alpine lake.
True, the outdoors are an excellent reason to book a Sedro-Woolley vacation rental. But there’s a lot to love about this area even if you choose to stick closer to home. In the spring, the nearby Skagit Valley bursts with color as thousands of tulips are in bloom. There’s even a festival—if you’re planning to attend, keep an eye on local updates to see which colors and varieties are currently in bloom.
While Seattle and Bellingham both offer a wide array of shopping, dining, breweries, wineries, and other entertainment, there are some hidden gems near our Sedro-Woolley vacation rentals, too. Eagle Haven Winery is just a few minutes outside of town, and is a great place to enjoy some local wine with a stellar view of the mountains. If you’re hungry, head to Coconut Kenny’s for a slice of pizza at a local Washington chain, or to Double Barrel BBQ for a tasty brisket in a low-key setting.
With a dramatic landscape, friendly vibe, and access to all the fun of Washington’s larger cities, it’s no surprise that this city is so beloved by travelers. Whether you’re escaping Seattle for the weekend or heading cross-country for a Pacific Northwestern adventure, our Sedro-Woolley vacation rentals are ready to host your getaway.
